Douglas Fir Campground offers standard sites, accomodating tents and RVs. Several campsites are located at the river's edge, while others are shaded by a mature, mixed conifer forest. A historic sheltered picnic area, constructed by the Civilian Conservation Crew, is also available for reservation. Vault toilets and drinking water are available Individual sites are equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings and tent pads.
Visitors enjoy hiking, picnicking and photography in the Heather Meadows area located along the upper reaches of the Mt. Baker Scenic Byway, SR 542. Many popular hikes and climbing routes are located in the surrounding Mt. Baker Wilderness and backpackers enjoy visiting the northern reaches of North Cascades National Park.
Hemmed in by several designated wilderness areas, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest showcases rugged peaks, sparkling alpine lakes and old-growth forests, providing visitors with a variety of scenic landscapes. On a clear day visitors can spot Mt. Baker, the most prominent feature of the Mt. Baker Wilderness Area. Rising to an elevation of 10,781 feet, this active volcano is perpetually snow-capped and mantled with an extensive network of creeping glaciers. Mt. Baker's summit, Grant Peak, is actually a 1,300-foot-deep mound of ice, which hides a massive volcanic crater. Wildlife in the area include a variety of salmon species, elk, bald eagle and black tail deer. Migratory birds and black bears find ample habitat in the surrounding ecosystems.
The campground provides a prime location for hiking and picnicking in summer and early fall. Horseshoe Bend Trail is an easy forest hike along the Mt. Baker Scenic Byway, highlighting old-growth forests, gushing whitewater and forest wildflowers. Whitewater rafting enthusiasts put in at the trailhead, and experienced kaykers can be seen on rapids as the trail follows the North Fork of the Nooksack River upstream past a stunning view of Church Mountain. Hikers and backpackers are especially fortunate to have access to a variety of trails near the campground and in the surrounding Mt. Baker Wilderness area. One of the most popular hikes in the Mt. Baker Ranger District is the Skyline Divide Trail. This trail climbs steadily for two miles through forest into lush, open meadows with sweeping views of glacier-draped Mt. Baker. The trail then wanders along Skyline Divide for another 2 miles, offering views of rivers, forests and countless peaks.

What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
